Brake Service and Repairs

BMW Brake Service in Indianapolis

The average person drives 15,000 miles a year. In that time, your brakes are stepped on over 75,000 times. During each of those 75,000 times, you are scraping friction material off of the brake pads. It’s easy to take brakes for granted. You step on the brake pedal and your BMW comes to a stop. Brake pad wear is completed so slowly that it can be difficult to know when it’s time to for brake service and brake pad replacement. Depending on your driving habits, brake pads can last anywhere from 50,000 – 70,000 miles. Some signs your BMW is telling you it is time for brake service include:

  • Your BMW is taking longer than normal to stop and you are experiencing increasingly longer stopping distances.
  • The brake pedal is traveling farther toward the floor of your BMW before you engage the brakes.
  • Your BMW is experiencing the tendency for one or more wheels to lock up and skid while braking.
  • When you pull to one side, a vibration or pulsation occurs while braking.
